And You Won’t Step in Manure!

The three races that comprise the Triple Crown are always exciting, but with all the hype and success surrounding Big Brown, pretty much everyone’s getting in on the Belmont action. If you’re trying to figure out the best place to cheer on Big Brown, Casino Drive, and the rest of the field, we’ll simplify things for you: Gulfstream Park is the only place to be.

Gulfstream (901 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale) has a relationship with America’s favorite three year-old: He won the Florida Derby there and trained at Gulfstream’s Palm Beach facility before he became the shining star he is today. Since Brown might be the first horse in 30 years to trot away with all three victories, Gulfstream is celebrating — big. See, even if your pony doesn’t win, place, or show, you could still leave with tons of great stuff, like a trip for two to New York, complete with airfare, hotel, and tickets to either a Broadway show or sporting event of your choice. If you’re more a slots type than a horsy type, they’ve got you covered, too. Everyone swiping GP Advantage Club cards through the one-arm bandits on this glorious, heavenly day of gambling could win laptops, GPS systems, or digital cameras. So leave the couch and join the action; Big Brown is counting on you. Call 954-454-7000, or visit
